I’m optimistic — “It’s never too late baby …” as long as we can understand and continue our “Revolution Against Empire” — in 2020 as well as 1776
We can solve this if we think and understand that the damn Disguised Global (crony) Capitalist EMPIRE is the hidden cancerous CAUSE — and that the ruling-elite UHNWIs and the corporations that they own, have accumulated almost exactly as much phony faux-profits as the ‘negative externality costs’ that their Empire has imposed on ‘our earth’. So, if the $27T that their Empire has stolen matches the $27T of ‘negative externality costs’ they’ve imposed on our environment, then a well balanced and fair ‘claw back’ via WEALTH REFORM is the only fair solution.
The seminal and causal cancer in America includes; 1. the massive corporate taxes of dumping “Negative Externality Costs” on our country and our world environment (as Nobel economist William Nordhaus exposed in his recent Nobel address), 2. the vast ‘inequality of income and wealth’ in GINI Coefficients — which birthed the whole “Occupy Movement”, and (3) lastly the fact that our former democracy is now the first Disguised Global (crony) Capitalist EMPIRE in human history, which is only nominally HQed in, and merely ‘posing’ as, our formerly promising and sometimes progressive country (PKA) America.
